Name: Merlot, Smoking Loon
Price: 6.99 (I think)
Year: 2004 or 5 (again, I think)
PHOTO of bottle:


Short intro from the wine maker about the wine: Not worth looking up, but the back label is a bit unique….is that from like Hemmingway or something? Anyone know? Of course it totally sounds like somethin' I'd write LOL.


Review:
Ok, it’s been awhile. I tasted this right before the PA trip and to be honest, I can’t remember anything outstanding about it. I do remember that it was very dry, very little character. I was thinking that someone else had tried a Smoking Loon something…but can’t remember and I’m too lazy to go back through all the posts LOL. Anywho, I wanted to go ahead and post my pics of it just because, I took the time to shoot it, right?

Would you buy again?: Na, it was nothin’ special, except for the cork, that’s hilarious!



Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: Nothing comes to mind. I think I did have bites of stuff here and there with it, trying to coax something out of it, but nothing did the trick. This one was really blah for me. (blah, ha! That’s a technical wine connoisseur term ya know Wink )
